Little Mouse’s Sharing Meal,
by Christina Dorudian
Little Mouse walked into his kitchen and said to himself, “I would like to make a big pot of my cheesy potato soup.”
As he peeled, chopped and measured he thought, “I should invite Gray Squirrel over to eat. He loves my soup.”
Little Mouse went outside and walked next door to Gray Squirrel’s house. He knocked on Gray Squirrel’s door. “Gray Squirrel would you like to come and share some cheesy potato soup with me?”
“Why that sounds delicious Little Mouse. I would love to come! I just baked some pumpkin nut bread. We can eat it with the soup.”
Little Mouse and Gray Squirrel thought that their friend Rabbit might like to join them. They went to Rabbit’s house and before knocking on the door they saw him in the garden picking vegetables.
“Hello Rabbit. Would you like to come to my house and share some cheesy potato soup and pumpkin nut bread with Gray Squirrel and I?”
“Why I would love to Little Mouse! I just picked some lettuce and carrots. I will make a salad to share.”
Next, the three friends went to Blue Jay’s house. Before they knocked on the door Blue Jay opened it and chirped, “Well hello friends! What a nice surprise!”
Little Mouse asked, “Would you like to come to my house with us and have a sharing meal?” Blue Jay beamed, “I would love to come. I have some fresh blackberries to share with all of you.”
Later the four friends sat at Little Mouse’s kitchen table to enjoy their sharing meal.
Gray Squirrel looked at Little Mouse and said, “It’s funny, I was going to just have a little pumpkin nut bread all by myself.”
Rabbit agreed, “And I was just going to have a lettuce and carrot salad by myself.”
Blue Jay added, “I was going to eat blackberries all alone.”
Little Mouse smiled at his good friends and said, “Everything’s better when you share it with friends.”
